From acne-fighting lights to tiny sculpting tools, to deep-cleansing machines, tech-savvy treatments from the dermatologist’s office are making their way into your own home. Once reserved for in-person appointments, things like LED light are now entering DIY territory. Take the brand-new Dr. Dennis Gross DRx SpectraLite BodyWare ($435). If that sounds super scientific, it’s because it is. This FDA-cleared, LED-powered system uses a combination of red and blue lights to target fine lines and wrinkles, relieve mild muscle and joint pain, and reduce and prevent acne.
Finding success in the facial version of the SpectraLite ($435), the dermatologist-founded brand decided to bring the magic to the body. So how does this flat tablet-like technology work? It features a combination of 148 red lights plus 68 blue lights that join forces to do those three main jobs… and it doesn’t take all day either. If you’re tight on time, but want to get in a session, after only three minutes, the red light works to stimulate collagen production, which is why you’ll notice fine lines and wrinkles minimized. The blue lights fight P. acne bacteria, treating body breakouts that you might already have while preventing new ones. If you have longer to spare and want to luxuriate in a more relaxing regimen, there’s a 14-minute mode that’s run on only the red lights, which provide anti-inflammatory prowess, leading to an all-over mild muscle and joint chill-out.

Dr. Dennis Gross DRx SpectraLite BodyWare
To use the SpectraLite BodyWare, simply place the device directly onto the areas where you desire treatment. You can either mold it onto your arms, shoulders, legs, or knees. Or, lay it flat against your upper or lower back and chest. There are multiple modes you can take for a spin. For the three-minute wrinkle and fine line reduction, simply select the red light setting. To banish acne, opt for the three-minute blue phase. Or, you can use them both at the same time for a double dose. For another move, you can select the 14-minute mild muscle calming routine. The recommended use is once daily per treatment site, and the post-treatment recovery suggestion is to follow up with the brand’s iconic Alpha Beta Exfoliating Body Treatment ($58). At $435, the device is an investment, but because of its multitasking abilities and longevity, think of it as a three-in-one.
